• Rumor: Yankees offered contract to Sheets

    The Yankees recently scouted Brewers’ star pitcher Ben Sheets and, apparently, they liked what they saw. According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees were intrigued enough by Sheets’ showing that they offered the right hander a minor league contract with the club. Sheets, however, decided to sign with Atlanta due to it being a pitcher’s park in the National League and it’s proximity to Sheets’ home in Louisiana.
